Better Late than never. This week’s exercise included reciting Charles Dickens’ Intro to Tale of Two Cities. We were not supposed to practice ( I cheated a little because I mutilated the words, “epoch” and “icredulity” until I heard them pronounced). Then we were suppose to recite ( I sang a little ) the Alphabet attempting to convey
I think I did fear the best ( mental note to self: Look Into That) and boredom well. Excitement not so much, I sound more happy. Great exercise and I will use this in the future to prepare for recordings!
Charles Dickens Tale of Two Cities
“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way…”
P.S. If anyone can help me figure out how to embed audio into wordpress I’d sooooo appreciate it! Comment PLEASE.
